The new Spotify playlist New Traditions/Country Heroes spotlights the latest music from some of country’s most iconic artists including Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, George Strait and more.

The playlist is the result of a collaboration between Spotify’s Global Head of Country Music John Marks and Webster Public Relations President Kirt Webster.

The first five songs on the playlist come from Parton’s upcoming album, Pure & Simple, scheduled for a Friday (Aug. 19) release. Additionally, the playlist will feature liners from Parton saluting the premiere of the playlist and release of her album.

“The New Traditions/Country Heroes is a playlist where legacy artists making current music can be heard anytime on demand,” said Marks. “I have nothing but admiration and respect for all of the artists represented in this list and Spotify is proud to provide this platform to those who are still out there on the road and making great music.”

“I’m so excited to be a part of the launch of the New Traditions/Country Heroes playlist on Spotify. It’s really important to keep up with the times and I’m thrilled to bring the fans these Pure & Simple songs. They come from the heart and I sure hope everyone enjoys them,” said Parton.
